Promoting ocean-friendly agricultural practices can significantly reduce the negative impacts of agriculture on the ocean. Traditional agricultural practices often involve the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, which can runoff into waterways and eventually end up in the ocean, causing eutrophication and harmful algal blooms. To prevent this, sustainable agricultural practices like crop rotation, natural pest control, and organic farming can be used. Additionally, practices like reducing irrigation water use, conserving soil, and managing manure can reduce the amount of pollution that enters the ocean. Promoting these practices can not only protect the ocean, but also lead to better food security and improved livelihoods for farmers.
